Daily Deviation

Given 2010-12-09
The suggester says: "I think Small Gods is another very amazing work of *MarcSimonetti who already has a lot of Daily Deviations in his Gallery. The most stunning part in this artwork are Composition and Perspective - having 'the guts' to present it upside down makes the watcher stay and turn their head to get a better view, almost drowning in curiosity what they might miss if they stop standing like this :heart:" ( Suggested by shihoran and Featured by Norke )

Great choice of scene to illustrate for the cover. I love the perspective and the characters. The eagle high in the distance is a great touch.

Another favourite, and wow, i like this even more! So within the spirit of the book !
I love the perspective , looks like you are playing with the idea of the upside turtle being also a god, so it's actually us who are upside down! ^^

I ordered this in 10x25 giclee and it looks FANTASTIC!

Interestingly, the French publisher put the art on the book upside-down (er, right-side up, um, you know what I mean). That also seems to be how the wife thinks I should hang it up...
